the benefit of president obama and my best evidence for that is 1962, jack kennedy, of course, was president, was not running for reelection, but was getting slaughtered in the polls and was supposed to lose decisively in the election, and the cuban missile crisis came, and kennedy won in 1962 # because when there is a threat to the united states or people are afraid, they quite naturally and rightly rally to their president. if there is an international crisis in october of any sort, whether triggered by iran or triggered by israel or triggered by us, it helps president obama significantly. i do not -- i don't imagine he is ambitious enough to start a war to save his presidency, but the israelis will run on their own schedule, not captive to american politics, and if iran tries to break out, they will not let it happen. iran would be well advised to break out in object of this year if only to hope that the united states is paralyzed by politics. pray that doesn't happen. >> final question from a 15-year-old high school student from san juan hills. >> hi, i'd like to say thank you because i
